Matthew 10:5-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The Commissioning of the Twelve. Jesus sent out these twelve[a] after instructing them thus, “Do not go into pagan territory or enter a Samaritan town. Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Footnotes:

  1. 10:5–6 Like Jesus (Mt 15:24), the Twelve are sent only to Israel. This saying may reflect an original Jewish Christian refusal of the mission to the Gentiles, but for Matthew it expresses rather the limitation that Jesus himself observed during his ministry.
